Blenheim Fun Ride
The Fun Ride will take place on Sunday 15th September in 2013. Please click here to book your place now (select Sunday / Admission Tickets / Fun Ride).
After the success of the inaugral Fun Ride in 2012, 300 everyday riders are able to enjoy some of the roads and tracks of the Blenheim Estate and ride along some of the three day event track after the CIC3* Cross Country has finished.
The ride, which covers approximately 10 miles, incorporates some optional fences of 2'3" to 2'9". It also offers some amazing views of the Estate and Palace and unique photo opportunities, as well as the opportunity to see the park on horseback - something which is normally not accessible to everyday riders!
The ride is kindly officiated by the Bicester and Whaddon Chase Pony Club.
